Forever by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with a card featuring my favourite Dina Wakley face stamp, she always looks so lost in her thoughts.

What to do:

Take a piece of Strathmore paper and placing the stencil on top, spray with a mixture of Dylusions sprays in the ‘citrus’ shades, remove stencil and dry with heat gun.

Next, take the chevron stamp from a PaperArtsy set and apply directly on top of the background using Fern Green Archival ink. 

Stamp the face on a separate piece of Strathmore paper and colour with Distress Markers and a water brush, fussy cut out and adhere just on top of the chevron image.

For the finishing touches, add a Tim Holtz sentiment.

I also added a couple of leaves from one of my hand carved stamps, mount on black and then white cardstock……..and there she is…deep in thought again ;)

Supplies Used:

Speedy Carve Block (if you want to try your hand at carving a leaf stamp)

Hope you like it
